Laser Cutting, Punching On A Single Platform
Murata Machinery says its Motorum 2558 Hybrid laser punch system combines high speed processing; reliable and accurate punching and forming; and flexible laser cutting. A CNC and laser oscillator are said to increase the system’s overall productivity by integrating bending, forming, tapping and other processes with standard punching and laser cutting operations. According to the company, the laser punch system provides a high-quality edge cut with features such as a cutting monitor, a user-friendly laser cutting head with a crash-protection function, a non-contact height sensor and a laser power control function for complicated edge cutting.
Gantry-Loaded CHuckers Turn Up Productivity
Faced with a bottleneck in its turning operation, this manufacturer of tapered bearings for railcars invested in automated, twin-spindle CNC chuckers. In addition to increasing productivity and improving safety, moving from a manual to an automated turning freed workers for reassignment to other tasks throughout the plant.
